Home Economics: Home Economics, full 3rd season Season 3, Ep 0
"Home Economics" is a sitcom currently airing on ABC in the US. It's reasonably funny, and has some fun actors and writing. The third season just finished and we don't know whether ABC will renew the show for a fourth. As English Wikipedia summarizes: "Home Economics follows the lives of three siblings. Tom, the oldest, his wife Marina, and their three children are considered a middle class family. The middle sibling, Sarah, her wife Denise, and their two adopted children live in a tiny apartment and are barely scraping by on their meager incomes. The youngest, Connor, is very well off financially but unlucky in love, as the series begins with him finalizing a divorce." The third season includes a book release, a family secret coming to light, a natural disaster, and a flashback to Marina's and Tom's wedding day.

Geo blocking and Australian streamers
Australia has two excellent free on-demand streaming services via the two government supported broadcasters, the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) and the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS). The ABC streaming service, iview.abc.net.au, is advertising-free and requires no login. The SBS service, SBS On Demand, contains ads and requires a login. Both of these services stream a lot of excellent domestic and international productions which I would like to bring to Fanfare attention, but I don't know if they are geoblocked to regular viewers outside of Australia. Are they?
